Did you use your crystal ball for that one too? It's just as likely that the cat was shot by some psycho ARA so that it could be blamed on a hunter for the publicity. I read the bumps on my dog's head for that information. I believe that trumps your crystal ball.

Bow Hunter? No... It was some punk idiot with a bow.

Hopefully that will be charged to the fullest and be ordered to pay back restitution plus all the costs for the treatment and care of this cat.

Then... staple the bill to his punk idiot forehead on his way out of the courthouse!

Find whatever way that you can to destroy all feral and stray cats on-site. If you don't destroy stray-cats as well, the source of all feral-cats, then you'll never be rid of feral-cats either. Avoid using traps if at all possible because trapping is what slowed everything down to where cat populations have now sky-rocketed out of control. TNR advocates are at least right about one thing (and ONE THING ONLY); trap and kill doesn't work either because it is based on the very same flawed method that they use -- slow, random-chance, inefficient, easily outfoxed traps. There's a reason the phrase "hunted to extinction" is so well-known in all cultures across all lands. It is the *ONLY* method that is faster than a species can out-breed and out-adapt to. The following link (of a study done by the University of Nebraska) is some good documentation on the most humane ways to confront a feral-cat problem where you live; including the best firearms, air-rifles, and ammo required. Though avoid using their suggested slow and inefficient trapping methods that got us into the ecological disaster that we have now. http://deenawinter.files.wordpress.com/2010/1...

On advice of the local sheriff where I live I used a .22 equipped with a good illuminated-reticle scope and a laser-sight for use when they are most active, dusk to dawn; as well as to afford precision aim for a humane kill. I shot every last one of them on my property, hundreds of them, to restore all the native wildlife to proper balance. Mission accomplished! 100% total success! This is even a more humane method than terrorizing trapping and animal-shelter methods; and why it is the preferred feral-cat management policy in so many areas today. One moment the cats are happily stalking defenseless animals to cruelly torture again, the next they are dead and don't even know what happened, they don't even have time to make a sound. Making your land 100% cat-free is something that cat advocates haven't been able to solve nation-wide for 30-40 years. On my land only 1 person in only 2 seasons was able to accomplish what they couldn't attain in decades. Why is that? The cost per cat was also only 0.3 CENT, 3 cats PER PENNY, a ONE-TIME expense (5000 rounds on sale for only $15). All cats gone for the price of a few cups of coffee. And contrary to another famous TNR-Advocate's bald-faced "vacuum effect" LIE ... NO CATS REPLACED THEM. The NATIVE predators and their required NATIVE prey that WAS here and BELONGS here is what replaced their lousy invasive-species cats that had destroyed the entire native food-chain.

May you have as much success as I did, and so quickly and inexpensively too.

@ Further help... What you do on your property is your business and nobody else's but...

Hunt or kill them to extinction. Seems to be the motto, even when we are the invasive species.
Kill all the wolves the lions the tigers the elephants the apes now the sharks. Why? For their fins to make soup. They cut the dorsal fins off then throw the sharks back into the water alive. Some species are becoming extinct over a bowl of soup

The last Javan rhino in Vietnam was kill by poachers this year. All the protected species laws didn't help one bit.

For an animal to take over an individuals property is one thing but this was in the city and this cat appeared to be somebody's pet.

There was a guy in Mansfield a few years back that was convicted of animal cruelty. For setting a puppy on fire, that was a little boy's Christmas present. The puppy ran to a little bit of snow laying on the ground apparently to try to put itself out. He then proceeded to kick it to death. Why? Because it walked onto his property.

To all the voters that think, people that care about animals are nuts or clueless. Hope this never happens to one of your pets.

Homo sapiens is NOT an invasive species ANYWHERE, you freakishly stupid MORON. Since humans have the genetic code to give them the capability to travel/migrate to ANY part of the globe, this means they are native to any area they can travel to on their own. Just like birds that have this capability and can travel to different continents and islands. Those that have the flight-range required to do so are NATIVE to those areas that they are capable of traveling to ON THEIR OWN.

Whereas, an animal genetically engineered through selective breeding, such as CATS, are NOT AN INDIGENOUS SPECIES ANYWHERE. They are no more natural to any native environment than some genetically engineered insect that was invented in some lab, that once released out into nature will destroy all native wildlife, JUST AS CATS DO.

If you phenomenally stupid cretins are going to use ecology, biology, speciation, and genetics in your arguments, the very LEAST that you could do is have a base comprehension of what you are talking about. Don't you think?

No. And that's the problem with terminally ignorant MORONS like you, you CAN'T think.

There's just no legal cure for "stupid".

There is absolutely NO DIFFERENCE between a stray and a feral cat. BOTH are INVASIVE-SPECIES that are destroying all the native wildlife (native prey becomes tortured cats' play-toys, native predators starve to death from INVASIVE-SPECIES cats destroying their only food source). BOTH are spreading many deadly diseases to all other animals and humans (including even the plague today). BOTH are illegally trespassing on others' property. BOTH need to be destroyed on-sight just like any other highly destructive invasive-species. Cats have NO RIGHT to be exempt from invasive-species laws, especially when they are listed in the TOP 100 WORST invasive species of the world. Global Invasive Species Database: http://www.issg.org/database/species/ecology....

Perhaps cat-owners should learn the distinction between being a responsible exotic-pet-owner and a criminally irresponsible one. If not, too bad. The rest of the world is not their pet's baby-sitter. A highly destructive INVASIVE-SPECIES pet at that. That's THEIR job to keep them from harm lest they be held criminally responsible for animal-abandonment, animal-abuse, animal-endangerment, animal-cruelty, and invasive-species laws. Let them explain to their child why their criminally irresponsible behavior and values got their cat killed by road-kill, poisonous plants animals and chemicals found in its environment, died a slow death from an animal attack, or was trapped and drowned, or shot by someone who is more respectful and responsible about their natural environment than the criminally irresponsible cat-owner. Maybe in that lesson in explaining the death of their cat to their child that the parent too will grow up into a socially responsible, respectable, and respectful human as well one day. Though I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for that to ever happen.

Would you care to watch out for the safety and well-being of about 150,000,000 pet Piranha and pet Black-Mambas released into all your waterways, lakes, swimming areas, backyards, parks, and backyard pools? It's the EXACT same thing that cat-owners would be requesting by having everyone treat their stray cats differently from feral cats. You have to remember too, not many stray cats are sterilized. Not ONE of the hundreds that I shot on my land was sterilized, collared or not. Stray-cats are the very source of every feral-cat. You MUST destroy the source as well, collared or not. Exactly how they are dealt with on my own land. Every last one of them gone. If you don't destroy the source of the problem as well, then you've done nothing to solve the problem. Absolutely nothing.

150 MILLION soon to turn into 1.5 BILLION feral-cats within the year in the USA is no time to start being nice to criminally irresponsible cat-owners anymore. They had their chance to learn how to keep their cats safe from harm. That time is WELL OVER. EXPIRED. DONE. FINISHED. It's time to solve the problem, not namby-pamby coddle a bunch of criminally negligent IDIOTS that have caused the present ecological disaster we face today. Time to grow up and grow a spine and get the strength of heart that is required to do what is absolutely necessary now. NICE doesn't work when facing a biological disaster of this magnitude. Being "nice" about it is what caused it.

Further Help... Wow! Seems you can't have an adult conversation with anyone, with your constant rhetoric antics and childish name calling.

Dogs are an invasive species that we genetically altered from the wolf. Some of our Livestock are invasive species as well. Yet humans killed off all the wolves as well big cats in areas that we traveled to. That's what I meant by "Humans being invasive". We travel to an area and kill everything that is a threat to our invasive livestock, what we don't want, need or are afraid of.

Domesticated cats originated in Egypt. They were introduced here way before you were born. Don't blame it on the cats blame the irresponsible pet owners. Cats kill to survive that's what animals do that's what we do.

Like I said this is your property, dude I don't care what you do. This wasn't a cat going around terrorizing the neighborhood killing all the little mice, ground squirrels, attacking, biting or scratching people. Like some irresponsible dog owners do. They'll just drop their invasive dogs off anywhere they want. Or they get loose and attack children and adults.

I have an indoor/outdoor cat that I took in as a kitten from a neighborhood irresponsible pet owner. I had her spayed and now when she goes out I don't have to worry about anything. She is an excellent hunter by the way. I don't have to worry about mice, rats, moles or ground squirrels getting into or building nest where they don't belong. She takes care of them for me. As well, I don't have to resort to using poison that another animal could get into.

Believe me I understand how some invasive species can really effect an area. Actually, it's not only in animals but plant species as well.

Anyway, I'm done conversing with you here until you can grow up and stop your childish name calling. Believe you me I am far from being a stupid moron.

Just because you yell louder doesn't always make you right. You have a good day.

Not many people in rural areas let their dogs roam free, leash-laws or not. Because they KNOW that nearly every, if not every, state in the USA has laws where it is mandatory to shoot any dog on-sight that is spotted harassing wildlife (mainly deer for most laws). You won't often hear about feral dog-packs in rural areas. They are dealt with immediately by gun. People care about their dogs in the country. They know they will be destroyed by their neighbors if they let them roam free, and rightly so. Unlike idiotic and disrespectful cat lovers who could care less about their cats or their neighbors, rural or urban. I think the same thing has to now be done to all roaming cats in every location, can be shot on sight anywhere. Then the owners can prove whether they really care about their lousy piece-of-sh** cats or not by keeping them safe from immediate harm at all times.

The DEADLY Cat-Attractor Equation

TNR studies at the Texas A&M University have found that their oft-spewed "vacuum effect" is a bald-faced lie. They started out with 12 sterilized cats and attracted over 30 in just 9 months. Simple reason being, CATS ATTRACT CATS. Keep one and more will find you. Get rid of them all and there's nothing to attract more.

Another fun kicker. Cats' Toxoplasma gondii parasite they spread through their feces is meant to infect rodents. This cat-parasite alters the mind of any animal it infests (even humans). Any rodents infected lose their fear of cats and are attracted to cat urine. http://scitizen.com/neuroscience/parasite-hij... Not only do cats attract more cats, but they also attract more rodents to the area with their slew of flea-borne and other rodent diseases. If cats eat rodents then they contract those rodent diseases to spread those diseases to humans. The attractor-equation is not just CATS = CATS + CATS, it's actually CATS = CATS + CATS + RODENTS + DISEASES.

TNR IS 100% FAILURE -- no matter which way you try to spin that sorry hole-filled story.

ANY cat -- stray, feral, sterilized, or fertile -- is just a magnetic "seed cat". No matter how they are there or in what state of reproductive-viability that they are in, you'll attract and grow more of them. Even worse -- then you attract cat-advocates that want to turn your life into a living hell too. They're all part of the same life-destroying equation.

The FULL cat-attractor equation is actually: CATS = CATS + CATS + RODENTS + DISEASES + LIFE-DESTROYING CAT-ADVOCATES.

This is why you MUST destroy all cats on your land. So cat-advocates will never be able to control or rule your life ever again. It's THAT simple.

I did it on my land. Now it's YOUR turn.
